And just like that, the Bigbie Era is over

http://www.projo.com/redsox/content/projo_20050730_30trade.2277485a.html

The Rox are flipping Bigbie to the Red Sox for OF Adam Stern and C Kelly Shoppach.

Stern is a speed guy, a Rule V pick that has to stay on the Rox 25-man roster for the rest of this season.

I'm most excited about Shoppach, a 25 year-old backstop with a decent .260 AVG and .360 OBP with 21 homers for AAA Pawtucket thus far this year. This makes dealing Byrnes look a lot better if the prize is a young catcher who is actually good.

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
